Trump Was More Than Just a Liar—He Was a Lie. As Soon as He Accepted the Fraud That He Was Actually in Charge

"No Malibu hausfrau will ever again feel like she is in the French Resistance"

This is an excerpt. The full, 5000-word, text at the source. Curtis Yarvin is a blogger who popularized the term “taking the red pill” that he borrowed from The Matrix.

Though I did not put this in writing, not from responsibility but just out of cowardice, I did go around telling people IRL that my preferred outcome was “it looks like Trump wins, then it looks like Biden steals it from him.”

Some mistook this for an “accelerationist” stance. It was only Machiavellian. I would also tell Trumpists that I was “so pro-Trump, I wrap all the way around to pro-Biden.” This did not raise many hackles and was also quite true.

It is useless to speculate on the details of a Philadelphia election. One need only say the words, “Philadelphia election,” and anyone on or near the grave of Mark Twain will experience a little earthquake. Has Philadelphia ever had a free and fair election?  (This country, for what it is, takes itself too seriously. Have you ever considered the possibility that America has always been a joke? I’m sure most historians have.)

Field position

Ultimately, I am glad Trump lost, because Trump was more than just a liar—he was a lie. As soon as he accepted the fraud that he was actually in charge of the government, he became complicit in a fraud against his own supporters. They could never understand why he didn’t “do something” about this, that, or the other thing.

He could have told them why; he could have even worked to change that. He was given the choice between looking and feeling important, and realizing and revealing that he wasn’t important. He chose as he did. Given that he did, his defeat at the hands of the ballot wizards of the Midwest may have been legal injustice—but it was divine justice.

Yet, like many a flawed human instrument of the divine, what he accomplished was more than he himself conceived. He did nothing to “drain the swamp.” In fact he filled it. And left it flooded—which made it (a) more visible, and (b) poised to dry up horribly.

Accelerationists who voted for China Joe will be disappointed. Nothing will speed up. All the gas in the regime’s tank is coming from Trump. As soon as Trump is out, the panzer death sportscar custom-built to guzzle his pure octane will sputter to a crawl.

Once the Trump administration is over, no one has anything to fear or hate. No threat could ever be as exciting as the racist rapist in the White House. No Malibu hausfrau will ever again feel like she is in the French Resistance. After Prohibition, breweries could still sell nonalcoholic beer. This is journalism after Trump.

Why was I pro-Biden? Because I longed to see my enemies cast out into the cold, uncaring wind of poverty and despair. Why were you pro-Trump? Because you loved seeing your enemies grow huge and fat and hard? I like to win. I hate to get owned. How about you, my based friend?

By March or April, America’s ruling class will feel like Hunter Biden on a Tuesday morning. Hunter reflects. He knows he left his pipe somewhere. He’s not sure where. What he knows is that this world, which as recently as mimosa brunch on Sunday was still burning with the rainbow fire of a hundred suns exploding in H-bomb supernova pornstar orgasms while galaxies collide, is an ugly, boring place. A sterile promontory. A foul and pestilent congregation of vapors… also, something sticky is stuck to his ass. He’ll get to it in a minute… oh, man…

For four years, the regime is stuck with a spokesmodel who combines the charisma of Leonid Brezhnev with the probity of Willie Brown. China Joe is getting no younger. His circuits already wrestle visibly with every solar flare. He did bring a backup unit, who has the charisma of Linda Blair and was once the protegée of Willie Brown. Is God supposed to hand us something better?

The new strategic landscape

If this administration was not perfect enough, it started even before the election with a clumsy iron fist on the Internet. Next the election itself was fisted. Now, calls for lists of enemies abound. Feel the power of the dark side! Some of my best friends are very, very afraid.

They shouldn’t be. Yes, revolution’s iron fist is terrible. But revolution takes more than evil, smarmy, corrupt bureaucrats. It takes energy. It takes passion.

Those who bet on this passion will soon discover that not much happens when they press the pedal, and the next gas station is four years ahead. The passionate fringe may even get mad at the corrupt bureaucrats. This will be amazing entertainment and should do wonders for Portland popcorn futures. It will not lead to American gulags.

Trump America, meanwhile, is on full bed-rest with an epic rear fistula. These poor, innocent people thought they were playing a game, with rules. Until well into spring, every wipe will remind them what a red state is. Without wishing pain on anyone, pain has a purpose. Pain is the body notifying the brain of a danger that was not averted. “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.”

And indeed their future and the future of their posterity is not consigned, as they think, to the democratic rule of law, but rather to a ruthless, oligarchic regime and its morally-decayed ruling class, which hates them with the passion of a crackhead for crack, and is more than happy to burn even its own interests for any quick hit of sadistic power thinly dressed as justice. To any people in this dire, servile position, action is essential, anesthesia is poison, and pain is a holy gift from God.

Yet the grace of this situation is that red America has a long-term problem, but not a short-term problem. There is some finite time to get it right. Demographically, it will be slightly harder to repeat 2016 in 2024. There is probably also some kind of Moore’s law of ballot-farming technology. But hardest of all by far will be to get it right this time. Four years may not even be enough time to make a proper plan.

Beyond its own suicidal tendencies, blue America has no long-term problem. It does have a short-term problem. Its product sucks. Its product, beyond China Joe himself, is pure pompous smugness. As you can see by looking at his “rallies,” not even the dogs will eat it. And that’s before he was elected! The message was fresh… 50 years ago…

People will always buy this product, because it ships with power. Since 2016, it had been easy to contrast pure smugness with Trump, and market it as holy water. Now, it isn’t. The product does not really need to sell, but the people who sell the product really need to sell it. So China Joe’s presidency will be absolute hell on the journalism industry, which will either starve or teach its regulars to have a good time on O’Doul’s.

Red America’s story, however, gets much simpler and easier to sell. The identities of the overdog and the underdog, oddly tangled for four years by the aborted, farcical, incompetent Trump revolution, straighten out again and have never been clearer. Nature is healing. The nobles are back in power. The peasants are back to the fields. They will pound their swords into plowshares.  An inspector will stop by every month, to check for unsafe, dangerously-oversharpened plows…

One unremarked-on fact about Generation Z, and to some extent even Generation Y, is that they grew up on dystopian fiction. The methods of the Orwellian state are now the stuff of cliche. These tropes were even used against Trump, though they hardly fit. From here on till the end, they will fit like a glove. “Never interrupt your enemy,” as Napoleon said, “while he is making a mistake.”

Appendix: some constructive criticism

I hate to suggest public policy. But the tone of this post, though optimistic, is so mean-spirited that I have to provide one positive suggestion, which could actually be taken. Again, if you’re worried that this suggestion will actually be followed, you needn’t be.

If anyone in the Trump administration is listening, there is exactly one useful thing you can do now. The President has exactly one unilateral power which is dangerous to the regime: the power to declassify. This power can be trivially slowed to zero by the bureaucratic process, which is what happened when he tried to use it normally.

Instead, the President can order the US Marshals to seize and publish the documents. Which documents? All the documents—not just those about his specific beefs (though certainly those as well).

Except for weapons blueprints, America has no real secrets. Washington has plenty of real secrets, though. The President, even as a “lame duck,” retains every legal right to publish every single one, without process or delay.

No harm will come to America, for instance, by publishing all State Department cable traffic. The whole archive. All of it. Plenty of harm will come to the State Department. There is not a single file at CIA whose publication would harm America. There are many—some quite old—which would harm our government.

As for individuals named in documents, are the enemies of the people allergic to the power of personal destruction? It sucks, of course. But nobody ever had to get involved with the “intelligence community.” And time, alas, is short. And excuses, frankly, suck.

(And while you’re at it, Mr. President, bring the troops home—not just from Syria and Afghanistan, also from Germany and Japan. Leave your successor with American boots only on American soil. China Joe could invade the world right back again. But will he? Now, imagine if you’d conducted the last four years in this spirit.)

    the art of talking a lot but saying absolutely nothing. this “article” is 100% information free. it makes absolutely no sense and its filled with silly statements such as: “republicans dont know what to do with power”. Yeah, the ones of us who can actually think already knew “America” has always been a lie. Is that any news? “China Joe”? Thats like calling “trump Putin’s asshole buddy”. I went to the end and still have No idea what I have read. Give it up, informationclearinghouse has way better articles that this

    All the way to the bank. Ask any Washington politico.

    The people are voting for Ghosts. The NWO owns the entire US Government, the politicians, the judges, we all know the rest. Democrats and Republicans are just a name – they no longer matter because there is no peoples Government. The US is in the second depression since the turn of a new Century and guess who is running the show Again – or is trying ? Biden, Obama and Clinton. Remember who got bailed out and who got shafted ? Harris was ” hired” to try and keep India in the Pentagons Shere of influence and keep China, Iran, pakistan and Russia from becoming friendly with India – as in the Silk Road. It’s all about the NWO and their Agenda – and nothing to do with the US populace. Nothing.

  4. Jimbo Mcgee says

    Trump was like contrast dye in a petri dish. The primary outcome of his presidency was revelation. Those whose eyes have been opened to the corruption of mainstream media and Big Tech, and to the global agenda in all its nakedness, are forever changed. Satan has showed his hand and those who saw it can never unsee it.

    On the other hand, I don’t believe that the election fiasco is actually over.

    Trump was just a safety valve to keep the lid on until something truly hideous could be brought into action. Now we have all of the evil, and madness on line, and we are about to witness the first maxim of human action at work: STUPIDITY KILLS !!

    America is a lie… living on the past deeds of past can do generations. From Gen X forward it’s divide, plunder and lie. They will do nothing, produce nothing. All their diplomas and degrees are paper only. They will have their communism and will be justly rewarded like the millions under Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot.

    Bye,,, Bye,,, American Pie. You had a good run until you decided your young should have everything free and rewarded with trophies for being last.

    1. Saint Jimmy (Russian American) says

      Exactly the opposite is true. American billionaires cut the legs out from under the middle class and sucked it all up for their own fat asses. That started under senile, worthless, corrupt, mean Reagan and has continued and gotten worse.


      Lose all faith in the US political system. Things will make more sense and you’ll feel better. It does nothing for you or me or anyone who isn’t at least a multi-millionaire several times over. I know a few people worth several millions of dollars. That’s the lowest level receiving any benefit from our political system or from any government policy or program other than basic goddamn food and maybe a dwelling. That’s it. Don’t support either party with your vote, money or time. They don’t support you. They don’t like you.

      What the fuck is so hard to understand about that?

      1. Pablo says

        It was Reagan who tossed Mental patients out onto the street. Then he declared ketchup a vegetable. Reagan was conning the Average American the whole time he was President. Rot in Hell Ronald Reagan.

        1. Saint Jimmy (Russian American) says

          Yep. Clinton was worse and solidified what the Reagan people started. It just continued full steam after that, as they totally empowered Big Money and corporations and crushed the middle and working classes under debt and destruction of the benefits we had, from affordable education and health care to employment protections and a decent retirement. Crushed them all. They now have a pliable, mostly ignorant, suspicious, paranoid, mostly clinging, desperate middle and working class remnant that is vulnerable and very easy to manipulate.

          We are fucking done. D.O.N.E. as any kind of great country or “civilization”.

          1. thomas malthaus says

            Two analysts I follow give civilization about 10 years or less. They don’t articulate fear in so many words but I can read between the deficits.

            When I start crunching proven oil reserves with daily global oil consumption, I calculate roughly 7 years until oil nothingness is largely reached. That assumes normal oil consumption and relatively status quo economic conditions.

            Biden and his team will have to implement a more convincing plan than a Green New Deal that will require substantial fossil fuel and nuclear energy inputs.

            I agree we’re “D.O.N.E.” Under a bright light and intense heat, we may be better off TOAST!

            Fortuitously, we’ve a Pfizer-produced vaccine to accelerate the decline.

            1. bufallobiff says

              We were already supposed to be out of oil accd. to ‘Peak oil’ B.S. Oil is abiotic….it doesn’t come from dead dinosaurs……

            2. Saint Jimmy (Russian American) says

              Peak oil. Yes. Absolutely a factor in the decline and in the decision to fake a pandemic. Peak oil is real. It is established fact. All elites know this. Any attempts to discredit peak oil are absurd children’s fairy tales and distraction of the peasants.

    2. Raptar Driver says

      I would say from the baby boomers.

      1. ke4ram says

        Well the boomers had their share of parasites. No argument there. But I never saw them in huge numbers like today wanting everything free along with UBI and concocting the Magic Money Theory.
